Some of you might find it interesting to know the hobbies writers have, know what they do other than being chained to their desk. When I’m not writing, (or doing something not related to my writing) my hobbies include a variety of activities. I’m a more-than-average gamer, and I love my PS3. That’s not the only place where I take a break from my writing world.
But my absolute favorite thing to do is to cross-stitch because I can hear myself think, and at the same time, make a few ridiculous challenging pieces. A piece I made for my sister, Akitee, was a picture of a goat wearing lappa and glasses (more than 250k stitches, the most I’ve done so far). It takes me months to do one project, but that’s how I unwind. The best part is these art pieces are sold to help fund organizations like (LPICO) Liyah Premature Infant Care Organization Inc, PJs and Blanket Project, and Liberia Literary Society, a global online Literary Library of every book written by a Liberian author or/and other authors whose work is about Liberia, for future generations. At least buy staff a cup of coffee. Please, make a donation on their website.
Always happy to support Shades of Liberia fundraising projects for Education, Clean Water, and Women Empowerment.
